Dear future generations,

We are all sorry for all the mistakes we have made. We made mistakes like sea levels rising because of the heat from all our carbon emissions which stopped you seeing beautiful creatures like polar bears and arctic foxes. Sea creatures are dying from plastic and so are land animals like wild rabbits and hedgehogs. We also apologise for the small number of trees we left as well because of us wanting palm oil.

From now on I will try and get a scooter or bike so I can ride from place to place and I will use a lot more public transport like buses and trains. Lights and electric items will be turned off in my house from now. I hope we make a change for you and later generations.

We thought that the world was an endless supply of whatever we wanted… I know it sounds hard to believe, but that is the way it was.

 

To Annika, Anders, Stella, Eva, and Mickey,

In writing to you, I realize that I don’t want you to be hard on yourself if you choose to not make this your cause. But it is mine, so I hope that you hold me accountable to some of what I wrote here.

 

Dear Nuriel, Eliran, and Rotem,

Sometimes I think we will never make it, but I know we must keep trying.
